In the near future, travelling to and from airport terminals could pretty much turn into a tech-packed and seemingly more comfortable affair. Leading the way ahead is the Gatwick Airport that is currently drawing up plans for futuristic cab-like transportation for passengers. Called the RoboTaxi, this contraption will shuttle people to and from the terminal gates.
The vehicles are automated pods designed by Czech designer Kubik Petr. Designed to transport people quickly over shorter distances, the RoboTaxi will help the Gatwick Airport increase the number of passengers it handles on a single day, enabling the authorities to service nearly 45 million passengers a year as opposed to the current 34 million.
